Happy Friday to you all! Have you all been busy pinning this week? I actually haven’t been on Pinterest as much as usual (though I still hit it at least once a day!). It’s probably a good thing. Everything in moderation, Lins. 😉 This week here in Pennsylvania we’ve had some really mild temps. It was close to 60 yesterday and felt wonderful. My crocuses are blooming and I have bulbs of all sorts popping their heads up out of the ground. The tulips are my hands-down favorite. I can’t wait for them to bloom and spring to officially arrive!
This week I wanted to share this awesome pin I found with you: growing succulents in a frame, beautiful pictures and detailed instructions courtesy of Luna-See. Isn’t it so cool? If you have limited yard space to work with but still want to grow something pretty, or if you want to have something portable to decorate a patio, or if you’re just plain funky with your plants, check this out! I definitely want to try something like this this summer. I’m not sure how many other plants would work with this idea. Succulents have really shallow roots, so they’re easy to stick into this frame and they are also short plants, meaning they don’t have long, rangy stems. Other plants would probably flop over if you hung this looking not-so-pretty.
You could do a smaller frame and set it on a table top or somehow lie it flat to display it. Then you might be able to use different plants but you still want to use something that won’t need lots of room to grow its roots. Maybe some herbs? What about mint? That’s a good one to keep in a container. I learned that the hard way a couple of years ago when it just about took over my garden. Whatever you might choose, I’d pick something sort of compact that’s not going to hide the frame. After all, that’s the unique thing about this project!
I love all the ideas I find on Pinterest! Are you a pinning fool, too? Come join me so we can share cool ideas together. Not on Pinterest yet? You’ll need an invite to get started. Shoot me an email at pandorasdeals at gmail dot com and I’ll send you one!
